Learn to embroider with woolen threads on woolen fabric using different stitches like back stitch, chain stitch, satin stitch, blanket stitch and herringbone stitch.
Wool Embroidery is a very nice technique, because it's quite fast (since the thread is thicker) and the material is warm and soft. Although transferring the pattern is a bit tricky, but I'll show you how to do it!
We start from the basics, so beginners are very welcome, but experienced embroiderers are welcome, too. You will get plenty of inspiration & good tips – and embroider beautiful handicrafts.
In this workshop you can just try out different stitches or start to make a project like mobile phone case or a sleeve for laptop or other device – thick wool is perfect for that! And that would make a perfect christmas gift for someone...
I'll provide fabric, suitable needles and some woolen thread, but you can also bring your own materials, leftovers from knitting projects are very suitable. Also if you already have some pattern in your mind, bring it with you!
Cost of the 3 hours workshop is chf 60, including materials (by cash on site).
I teach in English, in Finnish and in (limited) German.
